Tomorrow begins Spring Break for our school district, but it doesn’t feel like much of one since we have already been gone for a week due to the virus. That being said, I am grateful for the break because that gives me time to put some plans together. I’m a planner, it’s what I do, and the unknown sends me into panic attacks sometimes — though being a teacher has cured me of the worst of that.
Here are some things I would like to accomplish this week:
I want to try my hand at baking bread, I braved the grocery store to get some yeast when I did my last stock up.
I want to dedicate a little time each day to coloring or solving a word puzzle — I have plenty of those lying around that typically only get used when I travel.
I want to finish grading work from the nine weeks that was cut short. We were told to have grades in by March 30 and luckily I only have a few more things to wrap up.
I want to keep writing with my writing groups and maybe reach out to others for some kind of collaborative writing (does anyone else remember Round Robins?)
I want to try to get back into a yoga practice again. No sense in sitting around on the couch all day.
And, who knows, maybe if the weather warms up or stops raining, I can even venture outside and try to do some geocaching while also social distancing.
